While I sit here and will the sun to come out, I remind myself that my roses are loving the morning mist. I have TONS of white roses in my garden and am so glad I bought the silver rose bowls I found at a flea market the other week in England.
As a nod to the amazing Rag and Bone event DIANI just had, I’m dressed head-to-toe in the fab designer.

I recently returned from an amazing week in the U.K. with my fiancé, visiting people and places from my childhood. And, aside from returning with many incredible memories, I also returned with a need to shock my body out of the carb heaven I put it in! So I headed straight to the new juice joint in Santa Barbara called the Juice Ranch. With their wide variety of fresh pressed juices, I committed to a three day juice cleanse and it was just what the doctor ordered. I was never hungry and my taste buds were always happy. And, it also gave me the opportunity to try a lot of the juices I had overlooked. To top it all off, the staff couldn’t be more helpful, setting me up for the cleanse and explaining which of the six juices to drink each day.
A juice cleanse made easy. They box it up for you and number each juice so you know which to drink when. Love that!
And, they look pretty in your fridge. Who needs a candy store when you have this kind of eye candy?
How delicious do each of these juices sound? The Almond Joy is INSANE!
Get over there now, if you haven’t been. You’ll be hooked. Juice Ranch. 33 Parker Way. SB. 805 845 4657.

If you are in London before the end of May, make sure to check out the Man Ray photography exhibit at The National Portrait Gallery. It’s a comprehensive look at the evolution of his incredible photography techniques and fascination with people. His surrealist style blazed a trail not only in the art world, but the fashion world as well, and he helped create a visual style used by Vogue and Vanity Fair. Here are a few of my favorites.
Eva Gardner – 1951.
Solarized portrait of Lee Miller – 1929.
Helen Tamiris – 1929.
Remy Duval – 1930.
Lee Miller – 1930.
I also always enjoy seeing what the NPG has in their permanent portrait exhibition as they often have new aquisitions like my three new favorites below.
Amy Winehouse by Marlene Dumas – 2011.
Mo Mowlam by John Keane – 2001.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge by Paul Emsley – 2012.
I also highly recommend the Bowie Exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. It was sold out while we were there, so book WAY ahead. It shows until August 11th.
